  1. i got one question… when mike from steelheart sings, he seems to use a
    lot of energy in his head voice, i mean his mimics like he’s in pain, is
    this so, or is he just playing with us ­čśÇ

  2. so what? are these vowel supposed to magically make my larynx stable cause
    they really don’t. They set my larnyx at a lower point than where it
    usually sits, but my larynx still moves up with as i go higher.

  3. Say, when we do these exercises, our voices get fairly light when we reach
    the high notes. It sounds much different in an actual song, when you have
    that chest resonance really roaring. Are there any exercises that use the
    full on, powerful high voice? (Like, say, any power metal singer) Or will
    doing these lighter sounds ultimately make the more powerful sounds better?

  4. @AIG96 – never go beyond where its comfortable. If you start to stain STOP.
    If you’re simply struggling you can try to push a few notes further but if
    it hurts STOP.

  5. hey kevin i love your program. you demonstrate how to do it first which
    helps a lot when learning different exercises, just one question, is Brett
    Manning ‘s head voice style using the vocal cords in a different manor (
    see brett manning and chris keller making singing easy youtube vid) i can
    do both but Bretts seems a bit hit and miss as it feels as if i am just
    singing with only the vocal cords and no other mechanisms. yours uses
    resonance from chest and head, bretts sounds more whistle style

  6. @deeestroooy – it IS natural for you to break and go into falsetto. Thats a
    built in safeguard your voice has from caveman times. But if you want to
    sing Rock you have to clean up those breaks and keep your voice connected
    into your head voice for those high notes. A well trained singers voice
    sounds like one seamless voice from bottom to top. No breaks/cracks and no
    change in tone like chest voice to falsetto. The illusion is that your
    chest voice is connected to your head voice.

  7. you are not warmed up before you go on – and you are probably straining to
    sing the higher notes and probably singing with a raised larynx too. My
    tip? Get some solid vocal training. There’s a lot to work on.

  8. the problem with my voice is that my head voice is very low.. that is its
    not loud… and even worse… if i am warmed up, i kinda sing better with
    my chest voice but the head voice is very very inaudible..

  9. Hi master! i have a problem with my voice…its a quite weird but here it
    is…when i hit a high note i have phlegm come out of my throat ( my
    english its very bad sorry! ), but ONLY in the high notes! its normal? what
    can i do? Thanks!!! and great work!

  10. Hmm…I usually use a mixed voice for notes above my belt-break (being A4),
    and I can usually get a mixed belt to an A5, sometimes higher, sometimes
    lower. The only difference that I hear in your voice is that your tone
    sounds smoother, but that’s because my mixed voice sounds different than
    yours, I guess.

  11. @kekeoki123 – if you carry a lot of tension in your throat even when
    speaking I’d suggest seeing a speech pathologist first to diagnose the
    problem. Singing adds pressure to the voice so it would only make your
    existing problem worse. Thomas Appell is in Orange County as well as Shaun
    Williamson. Shaun in a Lunte TVS instructor and Appell is a famous author
    and vocal coach.

  12. Whenever i try to go up trough the break i always must silence the volume
    for a bit to pass it.Why is this so?If i try to sing in the same volume or
    loudness in the break area it … breaks!What has the volume of the tone
    with the break in common?

  13. @JackLloyd17 – one can develop head voice two ways, 1. work on head voice
    by itself – isolate the head register and work on getting it strong. 2.
    work from chets voice up into head voice. You cannot strengthen head voice
    from the top down.

  14. I’ve been working on my voice for 5 months now, and while my chest voice is
    coming in nicely, my head voice isn’t. I can stay in key fairly well, but
    the voice sounds funny (like the way men imitate girl voices). Any tips on
    fixing that?

  15. Hey Kev, great videos. They really helped me with my headvoice. =) I’m
    still working on the clunk, that’s kinda hard for me, but it’s better than
    it used to be. I just wanna know one thing. I’m a bass-baritone, i’m barely
    touching the tenor. The trouble is, my transition is kinda weird, from
    baritone to my headvoice. i mean i’m able to do it on the longer, legato,
    sliding climb-ups, but i can’t really sing in that middle part. Is there
    any way to straighten it out, with exercises like these?

  16. While its true that someone needs some training to do THIS exercise, vowels
    are NOT the first thing to learn. Breathing is. Vowels are meaningless if
    you’re not breathing correctly. Vowels are very important but they’re
    nowhere near the whole story.

  17. Hey Kevin if i wanna sing high notes in head voice like my idol Matijevic
    do i have to beat the clunk?Can anyone hit high notes in head and still
    have a clunk?
